Will Alex Throw it Deep More this Year?

Recommended Posts

Didn't wanna start a new thread but this is pretty telling as to why Alex's early years went the way they did, at least, from Alex's perspective.

You've gotta watch the whole thing. I got it at Arrowheadpride, not sure where the original was posted:

Just came here to post another part, I didn't see the whole thing still to this point. That's nuts! Glad you put the whole thing up. Theres so much political correctness now days it's nice to see Alex let his hair down sotospeak. Looks like Mahomes might be our guy as early as next season. That could be the main reason behind Alex's aggressiveness last week and probably moving forward.

They did not know this Alex existed.  You can't game plan for an Alex we've never seen before.

OL is the key to Alex goin deep....with time he will and can.  Look for #84 to have a game.  Screens to slow the rush, quick slants to mess with LB drops, and an occasional "air it out" to keep it all workin.  Chan West may show up this week too.  Chiefs 28-17.

For what it may be worth:  http://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/will_threat_of_patrick_mahomes_push_alex_smith_to_mvp_caliber_season/s1_7899_24634858

Alex has been a very good game manager, which was what we needed when he arrived. He has not been good at applying pressure, which is what we needed in playoff games. The idea that PM2 is pushing Smith to test his limits is valid. What most people miss is there was slack in the limits to be exploited. It isn't just the long throws, it's also throwing into tighter coverage. Finer lines is going to mean the occasional bad result, even a bad game or two. We have a good defense. They can cope.
